Rosen Has Chosen UCLA

Written by 

Rosen J 350UCLA’s future at the signal caller position received a huge boost when Josh Rosen (6-4, 205), from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, decided that he will continue his education and his football career as a Bruin. 

Rosen is a huge get for UCLA. He considered by just about every recruiting service as the Nation’s No. 1 quarterback prospect. Landing a prospect of Rosen’s stature is an indication on where the Bruin program is going under the leadership of head coach, Jim Mora.

Rosen could have pretty much named his school, but he narrowed his list down to UCLA, Cal and Michigan.

“They are all incredible schools,” Rosen told BruinBru.com in an earlier interview. “All have great a great combination of academics and athletics, in terms of how they can meld them together. Each has their own perks in Cal being in Northern California, UCLA being in the L.A., market and Michigan, being up in Ann Arbor. 

Landing Rosen, potentially can help the Bruins going forward on the recruiting trail. Other big time players will want to play with Rosen, a proven winner and a quarterback that has all the tools. He has a major league arm. There aren’t many his age who can throw with the velocity that he can, but arm aside what separates Rosen from the pack is his intelligence. It’s hard to believe, but he is only going to get better. Huge get for the Bruins.

Rosen will concentrate on his senior season and in achieving his goal of winning another State Championship.

As a junior, Rosen completed 224 passes out of 329 attempts for 3,708 yards and 46 touchdowns. He completed 68.1 percent of his passes while averaging 16.5 yards a complete and he only threw nine interceptions. He also rushed for 416 yards and eight touchdowns.
